Although the Piano is an integral part of a Chamber Ensemble
my inventory system counts it as an accompaniment.
Thus the Poulen Trio is a duet plus piano. Beethoven Opus 16 Quinete is a quartet plus piano.
My appologies to our wonderful, talented, accomplished, and necessary pianists.
Sale limited to April and May 2016 - and applies only to music in stock.
I am happy to take special orders, but not at the sale rate.

I am happy to report that three months out from surgery and I feel better than I have in five years!
I'm doing my cardiac rehab, ready for real Spring in Vermont so I can get off the tread mill!

Please have patience with Saturday and Sunday Contacts.

To use the catalog order system is yet a bit frustrating! Sorry!! But it DOES WORK! I find the problem is one of too much information in each file, coupled with poor programing. Still looking for a Virtue Mart Expert!
- It takes your order, you get your confirmation, but you have to wait, sometimes a full minute, for the order system to do its thing. Go make a reed!
- Don't push the confirm button more than once or we will have duplicate and triplicate orders, and you get email confirmations of all of them! But I will ship only one order!
- PayPal has an attitude problem. Use it, especially for foreign orders which can not figure the postage correctly. When I receive your PayPal Order I will send you a PayPal Invoice with the exact amount of your purchase and shipping. You will then pay the PayPal Invoice by asking your account to post a payment to
Not so difficult, but an extra step!
Your Credit card from the On-Line Order System will go through Authorize.net and is very secure. This works perfectly. I use only the amount of your invoice from the estimate. I will cancel all of your duplicates.
- The search box will find what ever you ask of it, by composer or a word or a title. Keep it simple. i.e. Go first to a general category like "Music for Oboe", then type in 'Sonat' (which gets you both German Sonate and English Sonata), or 'Bach, J'
I still welcome your order by E-mail, Contact Form, or Telephone.
Remember the dark ages when you wrote your order in a letter and mailed it to me?
The category "Music for Oboe", which went missing for a bit, is back in the catalog listing,
but you can still Browse all the Oboe Music HERE. Prices may be a bit out dated.
We're here for you.
